We are glad that you are considering homeschooling and look forward to getting to know you. You have found the modest web presence of L.A.M.P. Homeschoolers... a Christian support group for homeschooling families in and around the Monadnock Region.

The history of LAMP goes back to 1988. Larry Pierce, a local dad who was considering home educating his daughter, Ingrid, began to gather a few names of families in Keene who were also considering home education. He organized an informal meeting, so we could get to know one another and support each other's efforts. At that time there was no home education law in New Hampshire, and permission had to be granted each year by the local school board. Three families - the Pierces, Beniks and Hasbroucks met. The group desired to meet other families who felt God's call to disciple their children by educating them at home, and before we knew it, LAMP had begun. New Hampshire now has a home education law, but the need for support and encouragement, as well as the desire to raise our children for Christ's glory, still exists.

Leadership in LAMP is accomplished by a Steering Committee, but in a practical sense LAMP homeschoolers are all leaders… that’s because we all use our skills and talents to aid, encourage and inspire each other. Spreading the burden helps prevent a few from carrying the entire load. LAMP Homeschoolers organize field trips, start Co-Ops, plan Moms' Nights, coordinate book clubs, teach classes, bake brownies, and volunteer on statewide committees. Every year LAMP is a slightly different combination of incredible homeschoolers.

We would like to specifically invite you to our monthly parents' meetings. These meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of (most) months, either at Hope Chapel or a homeschooling residence. In recent years we've begun alternating between specific parent/teacher topics and more family get-togethers. You don't need to be a member to come, meet other homeschool families, garner some helpful ideas, and have fun!
